,000,000.20000000 dollars, the next four candidates according to these figures, tim pawlenty, ron paul, jon pawlenty, ron paul, jon huntsman, that does not even add up to 15 million. it is still seen as a slow money raising cycle? guest: because mitt romney had done the things that were necessary to get off to a fast start. relative to the rest of the field, however, when you look at this point in the 2008 cycle, mitt romney raised more than $20 million. rudy giuliani, $17 million. john mccain, the eventual nominee, $11 million. three big guns out front, competing against an open democratic field, we did not know that president obama's fund-raising operation would be the juggernaut that it turned out to be. at that point, with an unknown opponent, there was more fund- raising by individual candidates and folks using the gop nomination than we see at this point in a comparable cycle where we do know who the opponent is going to be. they know that money will be important and yet the numbers are substantially behind. it is disappointing. it has to be a letdown for the republican field. host: kenneth vogel w
parades aren't hard to come by. in iowa, new hampshire, mitt romney and jon huntsman tripped over each other. romney jogged over to huntsman to quote welcome him to the granite state noting that new hampshire must be more pleasant than beijing. in iowa, newt gingrich trailed a turquoise convertible behind michele bachmann. the candidates talked to anyone who would listen. >> who's on the ground, we're going to spend a whole lot of time in the state winning the hearts and minds of the residents. >> i spent my life in the real economy. if i'm president, i won't be doing 70 rounds of golf, i won't be blaming somebody else for my problems. >> they messed up the debt ceiling. they messed up health care. they're trying to mess up cap and trade with tax and kill. we need more people who have had political experience. >> they look as though the cliff is too steep. i am here to say, the lord does not need many. he does not need the biggest. he does not need the brightest. he takes what he has. he takes who he calls and equips them and up they go. they take with courage, they take the outpost. t
is kind of late to the game. he delegated this to joe biden. eric cantor, jon kyl left those talks when it became apparent that they weren't making progress. so finally the president took personal ownership and responsibility. i'm glad he did because only he and john boehner and mitch mcconnell are going to be able to leach a deal. there's not much time left to do that. i hope they go big. i hope we take advantage of this opportunity rather than have to deal with a piecemeal approach. >> woodruff: if democrats are prepared to give ground on entitlements on medicare and medicaid why can't republicans give some ground on the question of taxes especially, you know, we're talking about corporate taxes, doing away with tax breaks for people who own private jets? >> we're happy to talk to the president about tax reform, which is a commission, the simpson-bowles commission last december recommended. a lot of that is a good place to have a good extended discussion and to make our tax code flatter, fairer and simpler and also to make our companies more competitive when it comes to job creation h
